All Right?
All Right?
All Right? is a social marketing wellbeing campaign focused on the psychosocial recovery of Cantabrians following the devastating earthquakes of 2010 and 2011. It was launched in 2013. All Right? is unique in promoting population-wide psychosocial wellbeing following a disaster. It is led by the Canterbury District Health Board and the Mental Health Foundation of New Zealand, and sits within the Community in Mind Strategy (CERA 2014) for rebuilding health and wellbeing in Greater Christchurch. The reach and impact of All Right? illustrates that properly-resourced health promotion can be effective in supporting psychosocial recovery. In April 2017 All Right? released its latest survey on Cantabrians’ mental health as the region recovers from the earthquakes. The research showed there has been some improvement in how people are feeling since the survey was first carried out in 2012:
  • Fewer respondents reported that their current living conditions were getting them down (18% in 2016, 24% in 2012).
  • More respondents reported that their life was better now than before the earthquakes (34% in 2016, 19% in 2012).
  • There is a lot of hope and optimism in the region with 72% of those surveyed saying they feel lucky, 89% happy and 74% excited about the future.
  • It is also clear that the earthquakes and recovery related-stressors are still affecting Cantabrians’ wellbeing, with 64% of those surveyed still grieving for what we’ve lost.

Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre
Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre
The Canterbury Cultural Collections Recovery Centre (CCCRC) was set up following the devastating Canterbury earthquakes of 2010 and 2011, during which many museum buildings in Canterbury were damaged or destroyed. The Air Force Museum of New Zealand's extension was built to house aircraft and large objects for conservation, but since the earthquakes is being used temporarily for the restoration, storage and rehabilitation of heritage and cultural collections. This collection provides an insight into the challenges and benefits of providing safe and secure premises for the region's collections, many of which are nationally and internationally important.

Canterbury District Health Board
Canterbury District Health Board
Canterbury District Health Board is: the main planner and funder of health services in Canterbury; a tertiary provider of hospital and specialist services - both for the Canterbury population and also for the populations of other DHBs where more specialised services are unavailable; a promoter of our population's health and wellbeing; and the largest employer in the South Island, employing over 9,000 people across their services. More than three years after that first earthquake struck Canterbury in September 2010, the Canterbury Health System is still in the midst of repairs, demolition and redevelopments. These significant projects affect all staff and people using their services in different ways. The landscape is altering regularly as damaged buildings come down, repairs and redevelopment work starts to take shape in other areas. Canterbury DHB say, "We would like to say thanks to all Canterbury Health professionals for the important role they play in making sure Canterbury people continue to receive the right care in the right place at the right time by the right person despite the ongoing environmental challenges. We’d like to thank the people who use our services for their patience while we make our health facilities better."

FESTA
FESTA
The Festival of Transitional Architecture is a free, biennial public event that engages with the city of Christchurch by exploring urban regeneration through large scale collaborative projects and urban interventions. It is the first and only festival of its kind in the world. Over the course of Labour Weekend, events, performances and projects happen across empty sites and in vacant buildings within the city’s four avenues, reintroducing life and urban activity to the centre. This rediscovery of the inner city invites a variety of collective investigations into the nature of civic life and opens it up to the community’s desire to participate in the remaking of their city. This collection holds photographs, videos and site documentation of the first three FESTA events (2012 - 2014).
